like this beach are the result of a dynamic interaction between two competing geologic agents-- the rocky land masses and the energy of the ocean. people tend to think of these as separate and independent from one another, but by ignoring the intimate connection between land and sea, they fail to realize that this delicately balanced system is subject to continual change. building walls and boardwalks and homes on a shifting coastline is a gamble with nature that sometimes pays off with disastrous consequences. clearly, then, the coast is a part of our world that needs to be observed and understood. consider the waves, for example. their rhythmic motion and sound has made watching them a popular pastime, yet few people have a real understanding of what a wave is and how it works. understanding ocean waves is vital to predicting their impact on not only the beach environment but on coastal development. when a wave approaches the beach, it's not the water itself that's advancing, but a surge of energy which is moving through the water. it's like the ripple that runs across a field of

year, 4,000 to 5,000 tons of trash ends up in long beach. man: we've created a system to deal with flooding but inadvertently created a pathway for pollution to get into our waterways. narrator: los angeles county is beginning to develop ways to reduce the infrastructure's impact upon the environment. on the front lines of protecting the beaches, are the crews that clean out the stormwater system. man: this big vactor truck works on the same principle as your vacuum cleaner in your house, only this thing sucks up the whole house. some of the storm drains collect a lot of trash. i started cleaning drains in '93. they were horrible because they hadn't been maintained so much. now this is a priority. you have trash, animal waste, and it ends up on our beaches. that is a health risk. that is one of the main reasons why we have to close the beaches after heavy rain. narrator: but even when it's not raining, water still enters the stormwater system, carrying pollutants. here on the west coast, a lot of our storm drain systems are separate from the sanitary sewer system, so if you dump so
